The Apache Software Foundation takes a very active stance in eliminating
security problems and denial of service attacks against the
Apache Portable Runtime.
We strongly encourage folks to report such problems to our private
security mailing list first, before disclosing them in a public forum.
We cannot accept regular bug reports or other queries at
this address, we ask that you use our bugzilla
page for those. All mail sent to this
address that does not relate to security problems in the APR source
code will be ignored.
The mailing address is:
Note that all networked servers are subject to denial of service
attacks, and we cannot promise magic workarounds to generic problems
(such as a client streaming lots of data to your server, or re-requesting
the same URL repeatedly). In general our philosophy is to avoid any
attacks which can cause the server to consume resources in a non-linear
relationship to the size of inputs.
